ST3250824AS Drive unreadable

Hello!
I have a Seagate 250Gb hdd (ST3250824AS, P/N: 98D133-301, FW 3.AAD, date: 06293) - the drive worked fine in my old machine until the machine packed it in (motherboard) sometime in February this year. I have only just got around to building my new machine and now Computer Management is saying that the drive is unreadable.
Original machine had plenty of fans with a dedicated one for the hdd's and machine never ran hot.
The drive was originally installed as SATA-1 without the speed-limiting jumper (who knew?) and is now on SATA-2 but same result with the jumper fitted and not fitted.
Drive was formatted NTFS-Dynamic and there are no options in CM other than to convert to Basic disk (which it says will wipe everything).
Any advice would be appreciated either on how to recover the drive or to recover the data.
Thanks.

To recover ur data, try using a SATA to USB cable.. it will work as a flashdrive.. then format ur HDD again after getting the data u want.

It sounds like your hard drive is messed up. Don't worry you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

Cant load xp onto sata HDD


To use XP with a SATA drive you'd need to use the HDD disc software first as XP didn't come with preloaded SATA drivers. This is what is preventing you from installing XP on the drive. Once the driver is loaded you should have no problem. If your new hdd didn't come with a disc then you can download it from the hdd manufacturers website under the support link. Hope this helps.

PS3 hard drive transfer


seagate eSATA 250gb hard drive, the PS3 uses a laptop sata drive, how you get this to work?

You have basically have 2 options you could try:

Use Linux for retrieve the data of get the original mainboard back.

The PS3 + HDD bonds together, so if you were to save stuff eg, online purchases, you need to have the same account for max of 5 downloads to 5 differenct units, BUT you cannot just swap out the HDD and expect it to work. The PS3 has a feature to backup from internal directly to an external USB hard drive but online limited to data, most purchased movies and/or MP3 will not be transferred, it sucks.

You can have as much HDD you want but only YOU can use them , cannot be shared with another PS3. I hope that helps a bit

Powerbook G4 1.5Ghz and internal 250Gb hard drives


I have always found that the seagate drives are much more reliable than all the other brands. I suggest that you go for a Seagate. As for the overheating my lappy overheats even with a 160GB HDD. Over heating is not dependent on the size of the drive and is caused usually by dust clogging the heat sink. Good maintainance such as cleaning up the dust once in a while is all it takes for a notebook to run cool.

Windows 2000 advanced Server does not support Seagate 250 GB Hard Drive.


I am inclined to think that this would be a problem with the jumper settings limiting the size of the drive.
I can't offer anything more than that, sorry. Hope it will help a bit.

Can't open HDD drive


Hi
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).

This won't do any harm, it will fix errors on the disk and try to recover data from bad sectors. It might not solve the problem but it's worth a try. Jyo
